Product Overview

The ThinkPulse system is an add-on for the Ultracortex headset to provide research-grade active electrode signal quality.

  •  About ThinkPulse™ 

    ThinkPulse™ is an active EEG sensor system delivering research-grade signal quality with the comfort of a consumer-grade product. Thanks to flexible polymeric dry sensors, it is designed to conveniently augment the standard electrode set of the Ultracortex and enhance the user experience, allowing long recording sessions.

    The ThinkPulse Active Electrode system is an add-on to the Ultracortex EEG Headset. It has been designed and its compatibility tested for the 8 or 16 channel Ultracortex Headset with OpenBCI Cyton/CytonDaisy board.

    Check out All-in-One Active EEG Electrode Bundle, which includes only the essentials needed for a complete active EEG electrode set-up.

    ThinkPulse™ is NOT a stand-alone product - it must be paired with an Ultracortex MarkIV EEG Headset.
